    Cool..what is your cruising speed & rpm ? Gallons per hour ? & do you have the 5.7 250 hp ?


      We cruise about 23 MPH running about 3500 RPM. Generally we get about 1.1 mile per gallon.

              This boat is docked at my marina, same dock and everything. I pass this boat every time I walk down the slip to my boat.

              I often see the owners enjoying the boat at the slip though I don't recall ever seeing it out (I am not there all the time of course). Seems to sit more than it drives, as is probably the case with a lot of boats at this marina.

              I have not been on the boat but it does look to be clean. If you move forward do you plan to keep it at the slip she sits in now? Would be cool to share a dock with a fellow BOC member!
